no, i’ve never thought about doing it, but recent events have made me think about what i would do if i couldn’t have children, and i think i would be so greatful for a surrogate! there are plenty of women who are desperate.  as long as the surrogate has a kind heart and is doing it for the right reasons, i see no problem with it.

Yes I have thought about it and I don’t think it’s weird at all. M probably would but I think it would be great to help someone who thought they couldn’t have a little one be able to have one. I mean why not, right?!

i think you have to go through psychological testing before they clear you to become a surrogate…don’t want anyone stealing children or being unable to let go after the birth.  it could be really heartbreaking to take care of the little one in your womb for nine months and then say goodbye…but seeing the happy parents might make it worth it 🙂

I have an 8 year old and honestly I wouldn’t feel like it was my baby? is that strange?? I think it would be another baby that i am taking care of for the mommy or daddy… yeah okay i think that’s strange that i have that sort of disconnect, but it’s like borrowing a nice car for a week. it’s gorgeous and great to ride around in but in the end you know you’d have to return it. and to be honest with you that is exactly how i’d feel.

I’ve thought about doing it. I know I’m healthy and able and would love helping someone that needed it. I’ve never been pregnant so I don’t know about the emotional part of it. I think I can do it, but you never know till your in that situation and if the bond grows. But I think if I go into knowing that I’m helping someone then I should be okay.

My sister thought about doing it after she was had her son. She just loved being pregnant and wanted to help people.

I have never thought about it for myself, but I think it’s a wonderful thing for women to do for other women in need. And I would very much look into having a surrogate if I could not get pregnant myself. I think it’s great that you are thinking about helping out others in that way and I don’t think it’s weird at all.

I don’t think I would do it for a stranger, but I have a good friend who probably won’t be able to carry a child.  I’ve spoken with my husband about possibly being a surrogate for her after I’ve had my own children.  He’s not keen on the idea, since pregnancy does carry some risks.  I haven’t mentioned it to her, but it has crossed my mind.  I’d certainly do it for my sister if she ever needed it.

One of my best friends is a gay male and if he and his partner really wanted a baby and asked me to be a surrogate for them, I would seriously take it into consideration. I would probably only do it for some one I knew. But to be honest, I would probably try to talk them into adoption first. I think there are so many children who don’t have families that I would want them to consider that before bringing another life into the world.

Just some perspective from the other side of things : my littlest sister was carried for my mom via a surrogate whom we had never met before. It was a little strange for the whole family at first and people gave my mom weird looks when she would say she was having a baby in a month and was totally skinny, but after my sister was born, we were all so grateful to have her and thankful that someone would do this for us. We still keep in touch via facebook and she sends my sisters birthday and Christmas gifts and it’s not weird at all to us anymore. What a special gift to give to someone!
